2007 Cornwall

What a wonderful year to decide to spend a chunk of the spring in Cornwall; April and early May were absolutely stunning weatherwise. (Unfortunately, it now seems as though that was officially the English summer, the rest having been cancelled!) We spent most of three weeks roughly evenly split between three locations: (Trip on Google Maps)

  • Rock (opposite Padstow on the Camel estuary)
  • St. Agnes (new to us but instantly one of our favourite haunts)
  • Mevagissey (on an alpaca farm)

As usual in that neck of the woods, our main activity was walking the coastal path and it was so pleasant to return
with dry instead of muddy walking boots. As an unplanned bonus, we were also there to witness Padstow’s manic May Day celebrations; maypole, bunting and ‘obby ‘oss parades through the town. It’s a wonderful spectacle and a terrific excuse for the locals to start drinking early and to continue all day.
